Performers Wanted (3rd Grade-Adult) 
Northbrook Theatre Community Musical—Big Fish

Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa, book by John August

Join us to stage this fantasy comedy/drama with a big cast, big production numbers and a big heart. This is our second intergenerational theatre project, following the success of Oliver! The Musical, which challenged and rewarded participants and earned an Outstanding Program Award from the Illinois Park and Recreation Association (IPRA).

Based on a celebrated novel and acclaimed film, Big Fish is about a larger-than-life, tall tale-spinning Southern father and his son. The story is warm, humorous, entertaining and family-friendly.

Auditions are on a first-come, first-served basis and open to adults and students in third grade or higher. Performers will be seen in groups in the order in which they arrive. Bring 16 bars of a musical theatre song, prepared and in the proper key, and sheet music for the song that is hole-punched and in a binder for the accompanist. Also, bring any rehearsal and performance date conflicts. Wear clothes that you can dance in, and be prepared to read excerpts from the musical.
